Illegal dependency on internal package

Reports references in modules without on packages which are not exported from named modules.

Such configuration may occur when some modules in the project are already migrated to Java modules but others are still non-modular. By analogy to the JDK, such non-modular code should not get access to the code in named modules which is not explicitly exported.
